- Acclaimed Flop: Despite its great reception in other countries, the anime adaptation was more coldly received in Japan.
- Playing Against Type: Nana Mizuki usually voices heroic characters (and if they appear as antagonists at first, they become good later on), while in this series she gives voice to Pandora, a remorseless, manipulative and devious Dark Action Girl who is the one who corrups Alone in the beginning of the manga.
- Studio Hop: To date, this is the only entry in the franchise to have zero involvement from Toei Animationnote . Instead, the animation production is handled solely by TMS Entertainment.
